A Rash That Doesn T Itch
What would be the cause of a rash that doesn't itch but just looks bad around and above the nostrils? (it's been there for more than a year)
I have a rash that doesn't itch or hurt for the past week. I saw a doc and was told it'll go away by itself. Is this true? /users/ustinashives/desktop
Maybe: It depends on what your doctor said the cause of the rash is. It could be a local irritation from some soap or shampoo, it could be a mild viral infection, it could be an infection, all of which may go away untreated. Not knowing any more details, there is really no way for us to know via email. Call you doctor back and ask. You can take a few photos of the rash, and check with a dermatologist. ...Read more

Upper back pain with a red swollen bumpy rash that doesn't itch, more like aches. Also have a small outbreak of the same kind between breasts.
Shingles?: A painful, localized rash w/ bumps could be due to Herpes zoster (shingles). It could also be due to contact dermatitis.
